"To finally succeed [in creating the universal health care reform], we also will have to overcome powerful and persistent myths about our current health-care system. First and foremost is the mistaken belief that we [in the United States] have the best health care in the world."Critical at page 194.
What the hell does Tom Daschle mean to state that medical care in the United States is not the best in the world? Where are his doctors?
Don't get me wrong. I firmly believe that we need some changes in the delivery of medical care --- but physicians and surgeons are, on a whole, the gold standard in the United States.
Another bizarre statement by Daschle (and one which may indeed require that I end this Blog soon so that I can sleep) . . .
Critical at page 40.
"The [medical care] system is going to break. You can only put so many uninsured people through the emergency rooms before employers stop offering coverage." Daschle quoting Carl T. Camden, President of CEO of Kelly Services.
1. Max Baucus (D Montana) has already blew the secret that at 20 Million people in the United States will be uninsured --- the illegal aliens, undocumented foreign nationals, whatever your level of political correctness. BINGO. Even under Obama care, the medical care system will still break according to Daschle because of the constant influx of uninsureds into the ERs.
2. Ahh Haa. Daschle precisely wants the employers to stop offering insurance to its employees. Then the uninsured employees will need (really need) "poppy" Obama.
3. We are all being so played. We deserve to know the actual details of this plan and we as citizens should be allowed to actually read the bill if our congressmen and senators do not have the time.
Daschle's book is titled "Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis." The irony is that Tom Daschle's own peeps showed what we can do ----- get Daschle the heck out of the way.
